Bridging the gap

While the last few months have proved challenging for many businesses, at OneFifty we have managed to complete projects safely and successfully during lockdown. One such job was the removal of graffiti for Network Rail from 19 sites including railway bridges on the line from Cornwall to London. 

Best for the job 

Working for Sisk Rail on behalf of Network Rail, we were appointed as a subcontractor with the knowledge and skill in exterior cleaning to undo the damage. 

We always use the best cleaning approach for the job, so in this instance, with surfaces including brickwork and metal, we tackled the project using a combination of media blasting, pressurised steam cleaning and painting. Much of the graffiti was sprayed over large surface areas - such as bridges that cover three lanes of traffic - that can handle the variable pressures of media blasting. This makes it a suitably sensitive and cost-effective approach, without having to use chemicals that might impact the environment. 

Overcoming challenges during COVID 19

We completed the project to a tight deadline of just one week before the end of March and with a high spec, despite the challenging circumstances, which saw lockdown beginning, our delivery of paint delayed and our access equipment suppliers closed. With quick thinking and flexibility, we were able to obtain PPE and all the necessary kit to keep the project moving. The benefit of completing the work during the early stage of lockdown was that the lack of traffic made for easier and safer access. 

Complete project management 

We professionally managed the entire project, from traffic management and high-level access to security and insurance, on behalf of the client, leaving them free to focus on other areas of their business. The client was delighted with the outcome and we hope to work together again the future. 

If you need help with removing unwanted graffiti, contact Max or Andy Morris on 0333 234 1445 or email your enquiry and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
